Avatars
 
Why can't users have avatars anymore? I would rather have a small avatar under somebodies name (easier to recognize who is posting) than a big signature banner. Avatars are more useful and less intrusive. Plus they take less time to load.

I think with the board change only Mods can get Avatars, but IIRC JBond or a Admin saying they are working on it.

JF4 03-22-2007 04:43 PM

Something about taking up space...but we're supposed to get them back, eventually.

Working on it? It's a pretty simple process.

Plus now I don't know when you're posting without your Bubbles avy.

How do they take up space? They can be hosted off-site. Also, signatures are way bigger anyway.

GB12 03-22-2007 04:44 PM

No, we are not getting them back ever.

Exactly. I'm invisible now. :(

My avatar pretty much represented who I was. I was famous for it. You will see.

I swear I remember hearing that we will get them back one day.

JBond said on IRC a while back that we aren't.

BuckNaked 03-22-2007 04:47 PM

I desperately need my avatar back. I hope I still have it on my computer.

bigmac076 03-22-2007 04:50 PM

im not gonna hold my breath.

frogstomp 03-22-2007 04:50 PM

If we really are never getting them back, im going the hell on strike.

Where the hell is my Elisha thread?!

Shane P. Hallam 03-22-2007 04:52 PM

I don't have access to the administrator panel, but apparently Ward and Scott have found that we can only have them if they have hosted on this site. This obviously takes up too much space on the site and isn't really worth it. If you have a solution, or know how to get the option so we can have them hosted off-site, please PM it to me and forward it to Ward and Scott.

Moses 03-22-2007 04:57 PM

Just install a mod: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=39296

What did your post say?!

Mystery is afoot!

I made a thread about this a long time ago. Three posts later, njx9 flipped out and locked the thread.

We should have a poll on signature photos or Avators. I would be willing to sacrifice the ability to have pictures in the signature for a avator.

Do you not know how to read or are you just stupid? The reason why we can't have avatars has nothing to do with having sigs.
